Grant Wiens focuses his practice on education, labor and employment, and municipal law. For the past several years, he has worked with the St. Louis Public Schools on a variety of matters. Before relocating to St. Louis and joining Mickes O’Toole, Grant represented more than 70 public school districts and municipal entities throughout the state of Washington. He provided general counsel in most phases of school operations, with an emphasis on labor relations, personnel matters, school administration, student civil rights, special education, and business services. In his work with municipal corporations, Grant assisted with governance and personnel issues, development and enforcement of municipal codes, public records requests, and state sunshine regulations and served as a local prosecutor. Additionally, he regularly devoted a significant amount of time to presentations, providing training at client in-service workshops, speaking at association conferences, and guest lecturing at the Seattle University School of Education.
Grant is an experienced litigator who advises clients in a variety of labor and employment contexts: leading collective bargaining negotiations, addressing union grievances, investigating employee misconduct, coordinating discipline and termination decisions, drafting employee policies and handbooks, and responding to state and federal discrimination complaints.
Outside of his work with clients, Grant is a founding member of the Grafton Street Fund, a donor-advised fund committed to promoting and supporting innovative nonprofit organizations.
